Plant Now For Fall Veggies

August 5, 2011

There are many vegetables that you can plant now for harvest this fall.  You may have space in your garden where some of your early summer vegetables have finished doing their thing.  This will give you room to plant lettuce, spinach, turnips, mustard, kale, collards, and other cool weather veggies that are not really bothered by a little light fall frost.  Some of you in hotter climates with mild winters also have the opportunity to plant other vegetables including squash, cucumber, tomato and many others.   Be sure to replenish your soil by mixing in an inch or two of Miracle-Gro Organic Choice Garden Soil.  If your soil is especially sandy, you may want to consider Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Garden Soil instead.

And do not forget to plant a few containers with lettuce, spinach or a good mesclun mix to set around your deck or patio.

Get your kids involved in this activity to help them appreciate the wonders of nature!  You may even find they will enjoy eating vegetables that they helped you grow!
